Governor Mary Fallin vetoed Senate Bill 12, which was authored by Republican Sen. Nathan Dahm, back in May.

The bill is geared towards eliminating gun owners to participate in safety and training courses and to carry without a permit.

The bill also wants the following:

- Current and former member of armed services to carry both concealed and unconcealed firearms.
- Prohibit colleges and universities from publicizing rules prohibiting lawful carriers to possess a firearm in parking areas.
- Prohibit any alien unlawfully in the United States from carrying any firearm.
- Allowing the transportation of loaded handguns for carriers without concealed carry.
- Authorize off-duty officers to carry a personal rifle/shotgun anywhere in the state.
